Kenra Moisturising Conditioner

sveetiepiesveetiepie Posts: 209Registered Users
I bought this a while back and it never worked for me as a rinse out, but I kept it in my stash. Just recently I was reading the thread 'if you had to use only one product', and a couple of curlies mentioned that they used this stuff as a curl creme. Well, had to try this. Wow! am I glad I did. Really great hair! Used a nickel size of kenra scrunched in then a pea sized amount of [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/AG-Recoil-p-24.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=ag-hair-cosmetics-recoil-curl-activator]Re:coil[/buylink]. Lovely spirals all around.

    I will have to check this out!! I found Deva Heaven in Hair to work the same. Great for me as a curl cream. Just a pea size. I would never have guessed it. I love products with multiple uses!
    Can you also tell me how you use your Mist-er Right?

    The Mist-er Right I use after my hair has completely dried. I can't put a lot of product on my hair when it's wet, but after it's dried I can add some curls gel les'c or the Mist-er Right. Sometimes I only spray the ends, sometimes I smooth some water over after I spray it on.

    I tried this as a curl cream today and I love it! I do use this as an occasional rinse out and love the seaweed slip it gives my hair. As a curl cream, it defined my curls well and I used it following a leave-in and topped with AOMM. I can't wait to try new combos with it!

    tonsofcurlz, what leave in did you use it over? I have been thinking about using another conditioner under it. I do love it by itself though. I use about two tablespoons of it. :)

    I used Abba Gentle leave-in under the Kenra and super-soaked to get the curl formation going. I always use a leave-in base under any of my styling products and I chose the Abba because it's basically unscented. I didn't want another scent to clash with the coconut scent of the Kenra. I love that the Kenra is so thick. I used about a tablespoon total for my whole head.

    Ok, thanks! I don't have that leave in, but I'll figure something out. Yeah, I love the smell of Kenra and don't want anything to clash with it. I do have a couple of coconut scented conditioners. Maybe I'll try one of those. :)

    I ordered a liter of the Kenra moisturizing conditioner today along with a 16 oz tub of biolage conditioner (I've only tried the generic which I love). I figure if I can't use these for some reason, my daughters can. I'm hoping they both work for me. I will try the Kenra as a curl cream first and see how it works. :)

    You jump in with both feet like me! I love a chick who tries things out by the liter or the bucket!!

    Just thought I'd give a little update. So, this stuff is really good, amazing curl enhancer, but it can be a little heavy for finer haired folks. I found I can't use it for too many days in a row. I also had to minimize the amount I was using. I started to use only a pea sized amount. Anyway, just thought I'd let you all know in case you find it on the heavy side, just use a little less.:icon_smile:

    I've been using this conditioner in a variety of ways with great results.
    I started out using it as a LI/curl cream (quarter sized blob) and have also used it successfully as a RO. I like it mixed with water as a refresher spray too.
    It works well on its own when I want a soft natural look or layered under AG Mousse Gel if I want a little more hold.
    A great curl boosting moisturizer that my hair seems to love!

    Other: I'll add a little AG Mousse Gel if I want something extra.

    I know this is an old thread but...I purchased a liter a while back and ended up loving this conditioner. I found a 64 oz jug on eBay for around $52 with shipping. I can't wait to receive this!! I've been out for a while and had been looking around for a good deal. I originally purchased my liter on sale for $20 but couldn't find it at that price again. I'm going to try this as a curl cream as well. Anyone else want share how they use this conditioner?? :toothy10:

    I'm still using this and loving it. :) I'm also still using it as a leave in/styler, and I put approximately a nickel size amount of the curl and style milk or the smoothie over it. I think I prefer the smoothie...at least in this warmer weather.
